Hi. I'm planning to buy a piano and have visited three dealers in the area and have played on 6 different models...from Samicks to Steinways.

I have narrowed my list to the Yamaha U1 and Petrof 45". The Yamaha U1 is selling for 6K, while the Petrof is selling for 5.7K.

I wanted to ask your opinions about the price as well as the quality comparison. I found the Petrof more mellow, but was concerned about its dynamic range.


which composer loved to buy paintings?

Yamaha U1 for $6k is OK from the prices I've read/heard of in the last year or so. Don't know about Petrof 45".

My impression of the U1 is that it's a time-proven war horse of a piano -- works well, very reliable, can take a good beating over time, and very consistent.

I have less experience playing Petrof uprights, but I'd agree with you that they tend to sound mellower than U1's.

Suggest you do a search on this forum for "Yamaha U1" and "Petrof upright/vertical" to dig up old posts discussing these two in the archive.

Good luck. smile

(p.s. You can probably get more responses to your queries if you post them in the "Piano Forum" instead of in the "Pianist Corner.")

(p.p.s. Go see this thread too , as it addresses a similar topic.)
